3M Adds New Installer Training Program

Jan 11, 2021

3M Commercial Solutions Division has announced changes to its installer training programs, including the addition of a training dedicated exclusively to vehicle color change.

“We’ve heard from many installers across the US that there is a strong interest in learning specific application types. By segmenting our training offering, this aligns installers to build their own career path,” said Elizabeth Ziegler, Application Engineering Supervisor.

Taken over the course of two days, the new 3M Films Vehicle Color Change training and testing class will be dedicated to installing 3M Wrap Film Series 2080 and using 3M Knifeless Tape.

“This is a big change for 3M installer training,” said Janelle Pizzi, 3M Marketing Manager. “Since we first began training installers, our focus has been very broad, so installers could learn most types of applications common in the graphics industry. Listening to the market and focusing on the changing demands is our priority.”

Students will learn best practices and techniques for installing printed film on fleet vehicles, windows, walls, floors, 3M DI-NOC Architectural Finishes in an interior design setting and colored wrap films on personal vehicles. After passing a test demonstrating their skills in each application type, students earn the designation 3M Preferred Installer.
